The new animated sticker packs will enhance the stickers already available on the platform. Facebook owned app is making its platform even more dramatic for those who prefer using stickers to communicate.
Facebook owned app added a video icon in groups with up to eight members. By tapping on the video icon, users will be able to start a group video call directly will all the eight members instead of individually adding them. Earlier the messaging app spews out an error message that reads, “Several people are using an old version of WhatsApp. To start calls with six people (any number over 4), all participants need the latest WhatsApp.”
With the addition of more participants support, WhatsApp is looking to take on other video calling apps like Zoom and Google Meet.
